2001 Lexus GS430 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Lexus's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Lexus GS430? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your GS430 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my GS430 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Lexus GS430’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Lexus, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
